This was our first time to Cuba and third time to an Iberostar hotel. Its directly on the beach which is beautiful and the water is still, clear and lovely and warm. The hotel was nice and clean, and always had something going on. It wasn't the best of the Iberostar hotels we stayed in but given the difficulties in... More

We stayed for a week after 4 days in Havana. It's a great resort with lovely, attentive staff. The food is good (my Canadian friends say not so great) but we found the freash food and fish excellent (we're not big meat eaters). We were worried about the salad but it was fine, so we mostly had fish, salad, fruit... More

All-inclusive hotel with huge pool & gorgeous white sandy beach, that I highly recommend for couple & families. Brand new spa to open in January 2016, but you can still enjoy treatments in the Presidential suite.

We really enjoyed our time here. I went with my 6 year old son. Our room was large, and cleaned daily. The bed was huge!!! The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was plentiful and fresh with a huge variety. We only tried one of the a la carte restaurants- the Japanese. It was just ok for us- certainly... More

Lovely hotel with all the amenities and service we want - and more. Beach is great as are the staff. The weather was very good in August. We would prefer it to be cooler so when we go back to Cuba will will avoid summer months. Highly recommended hotel and holiday. Overall the safest island in the Caribbean we have... More
